Rural Seniors Shopping Bus

Provides round-trip transportation for a grocery shopping outing every other Friday. DARTS Transit picks up clients at their door/entrance and transports them to Fortinos, Walmart, Longo's, or the Farmer's Market in Ancaster (destinations vary by week). Also provides transportation to local outings and events such as fairs, live theatre, musical venues, and community events in the Ancaster and surrounding area. 

Space is limited for both services; please call the office for more information.
